Nice shots. The UP of my youth, and my basement. Would love to see any more you have. UP dropped the "railroad" starting in 1970 when the RR became one with the land and energy holdings. I never could believe that they actually went to the expense to paint out the word "railroad" on their equipment.

In the 60's UP ran big full color ads featuring these boxes in trade magazines

I believe the legal department told them they had to.
